JDeveloper. I was lucky to use XDoclet before. I'm missing it a lot, even though is not an IDE.

I am using JBuilder 9.0 I feel this is the BEST IDE for J2EE applications. I am using this for almost 3 years, initially I started with 4.0, 6.0, 7.0 and now 9.0. There is some initial configuration need to be done, but it is very easy.
Download JBuilder 9.0 trial version (30 days evaluation) from Borland.com

I too agree with Ketan that JBuilder9 is excellent tool but it doesn't support JBoss. Though I found that there is a patch in home.borland.org for JBoss but it is still in development stage. .Hope he finishes up before my project starts.

Eclipse + the Lomboz plugin is a great combination (and free).

Hi
I'm using IDEA from IntelliJ together with ANT to make J"EE code. I think IDEA is a great tool for making the java files, it provides many great features for smart editing the code, including code completion for many of the trivial interface implementations. ANT gives you the power of 'tool freedom' so developers with other favorite IDE can use there IDE, without any problem (as long as their tool integrates with ANT )

I'm using the same thing and I really like it.

I really like Eclipse, but I use IBM's WebSphere extensions (I'm an iSeries developer, so we get all of them for free). The WebSphere tools include a really powerful desktop test environment - you can basically run your entire application in debug mode right on your desktop, setting breakpoints right in servlets and JSPs, without ever having to deploy to a server.
The downside is that the only two supported servers are WebSphere 4/5 and Tomcat, but even so, it's very productive. And then you can export your project as an EAR file and (theoretically) import it into any J2EE compatible container. I haven't tried that so far; I'm still identifying some strange context issues with WebSphere Express.
